In 2011 my life as I knew it turned upside down, my amazing daughter was born. I had done reasonably well with photography as a hobby up to that point with some photos doing well in local competitions and even being published in magazines and online; but once again scouring the internet for any information that could be gleaned, this time on parenting (it doesn't help, the kids don't read it), I discovered a whole new world of newborn and family photography, which, up until that point had not even crossed my mind. I spent my days trying to capture every fleeting moment of my little one's growth and development and sharing the photos with family and friends. Friends began asking me to photograph their babies and when I reached a point that strangers were contacting me, my husband suggested I look deeper into the idea of opening a studio. Our outside room was remodeled and converted at the end of 2012. Around the same time I got a job doing the formal photos for a local matric dance, which gave me the capital to purchase my first set of basic studio equipment. As the saying goes, the rest is history.
